In 1985, the Missouri Supreme Court's Operating Rule 1 authorized the development of a Statewide Judicial Information System to provide statistical and management information to the state's courts. This role expanded greatly in 1994, with the enactment of Missouri Revised Statutes section 476.055, establishing a statewide court automation project to be funded with a $7 per-case court fee and overseen by a Missouri Court Automation Committee. This funding was authorized for a period of 10 years. The Committee's primary role is to establish and oversee the services and activities necessary to systematically plan and build an electronic network and collection of application solutions connecting courts across Missouri.

Titled Missouri Court Automation, and generally referred to as Statewide Court Automation, the objectives include the following:
a sophisticated and integrated justice system with great potential for improvement in the provision of services;
an integrated court system that renders geography largely irrelevant and presents a modern justice system with reduced costs to the litigant and taxpayer, with greater efficiency, wider access and enhanced accountability;
a system that takes advantage of new technologies to improve the day-to-day operations of the courts;
timeliness in processing of cases without sacrificing the quality of justice;
economies of scale and efficiencies within the judiciary by utilizing similar facilities statewide based on standards for hardware, software and common data definitions;
facility selections which will be viable solutions for long-term implementation and low lifecycle cost;
compatibility, or ability to interface electronically with other state and local systems and networks.
Missouri's Statewide Case Management System:
In 1997, the State awarded a contract for a statewide case management system. The system is ACS Justice Information System (JIS, formerly SCT Banner Courts). It is being rolled out statewide through a series of phases. These began with pilot courts in 1997 and expanded to over 76 courts in mid-2004. All circuit, associate, and appellate courts are slated to have JIS in place. Click here for Project Vision Click here to see Missouri Court Automation Committee Membership Questions or comments?
